Abstract

Chronic subdural haematoma (CSDH) is difficult to diagnose because patients with this disorder, in particular the elderly, present with such a wide variety of symptoms. The subject of this case study is an 89-year-old man with a history of CSDH who presented with severe depressive symptoms with psychotic features and who in the end turned out to have a recurrence of CSDH. An integrated multidisciplinary approach is advocated in the case of older patients who have had a CSDH in the past and who present with psychiatric problems and fall frequently. When a patient presents with such symptoms, one needs to be on the look-out for a recurrence of CSDH.
